The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) will be performing the World Premiere of Chinary Ung’s SINGING INSIDE AURA at Jordan Hall in Boston on February 15th, 2013. The composer’s wife, Susan Ung, a brilliant violist, will be the soloist. The work is scored for singing violist and chamber orchestra. Mr. Ung has employed the technique of having instrumentalists sing for a number of years now, and Ms. Ung is an expert practitioner of this technique. The BMOP under the direction of Gil Rose is a top notch orchestra, so this should be a wonderful performance.
This event is part of the 70th birthday celebrations taking place in 2012/13 for Chinary Ung. There will also be an all Ung event at Le Poisson Rouge on April 16, 2013 featuring the New York New Music Ensemble.
